Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser Review: Spa Mist

by Andrea on May 17, 2010

essential oil diffuserI recently came across a great new essential oil diffuser called the Spa Mist.

I bought one to try out, and I have been really pleased with the results.

It’s quiet, has cool optional colored lights, and fills our living room with essential oil.

The Spa Mist is an ultrasonic humidifier and adds moisture to the air while diffusing the essential oils.

  • I like that it’s lightweight and easy to move around.
  • The diffuser is compact and pretty!
  • The diffuser has no heating element.
  • It does not seem to clog.
  • It’s easy to clean and very user friendly!
  • It even turns off by itself as soon as the water gets too low.
  • The price is right–it’s only $35 at Aromatics International.

I have always loved diffusing essential oils. I often turn on the essential oil diffuser before I leave the house, and when I get home, the aroma is so inviting.

My current favorite oils to diffuse are Spike Lavender, Orange and Cardamom. I add five drops of the Spike Lavender (Lavandula latifolia), five drops of Orange (Citrus sinensis) and two drops of Cardamom (Ellettaria cardamomum) to the diffuser.

At night, I like to put the diffuser on, turn off the lights and fall asleep to the aromas. One favorite nighttime blend is nine drops of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), and one drop of Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata).

What’s your favorite diffuser blend? How do you diffuse your blends at home?

I diffused a lot of frankincense this past winter I think it really prevented lots of colds.
I mostly use a makeshift candle diffuser made from a couple silver pieces from an old service set. It works wonderfully & looks beautiful too!

This arrived the other day! I LOVE it. You only have to use a few drops too, the aroma turns out very strong.

I bought my Spa Mist based on your recommendation on FB about a month ago, and I love it! It’s extremely easy to use and care for, and very cute, like a steamy little robot. I’m glad to see that AI is carrying them now, because I’m planning to buy a couple more (I’d like two for the house and one for my partner’s chiropractic office).

A favorite blend that I’ve been diffusing is three drops Grapefruit, three drops Lemon, and two drops Rosewood; it’s so uplifting, cheery, bright, and balancing. Our basset hound, Myles, moves near to wherever I put the diffuser and plops down for a nap to soak in the goodness : )

Hey I have had two of these, going on my 3rd….somehow they don’t seem to last very long…I am wondering if anyone else has had the same experience as I?
I keep them clean and don’t overuse them, but they just seem to get funny…even after I have cleaned it per directions, and rinse with warmish water to keep the ring clean when adding essential oils..anyone out there??? Aloha~

Would love to know more about the SpaMist’s longevity because I am considering buying one. We bought six of the other ultrasonic diffusers that AI used to sell (3 stayed at our house and 3 were given as presents)… two of our three have stopped working and it’s time for something new. Our kids use them as night lights and have oils diffused through out the night:)

Can the SpaMist hold up to 10 hours of use a night?
